With more than 250 million users today, you can't overestimate the value of Skype. The popular video calling program lets you send messages, make voice calls and even chat via video calls from an Android. As long as you have an internet connection through 3G or Wi-Fi, you can speak with others. Beyond any doubt, the video calls rest on the top pedestal, but Skype offers so much more. For example, you can make VoIP phone calls and send free text messages to your friends. In addition, the emoticons spice up your conversations and make them more lively.

Along with those features, you can also share pictures and files like text documents with your friends and colleagues. A lot of businesses have taken a liking to the program because of the versatile communication. Since its first installment, the developers have simplified the program to present a more polished interface. In addition, the software designers improved the quality of the video calls since the first version. As long as you have a high-speed internet connection, you should experience few problems with video calling, outside occasional blurring of the images.

Skype makes business meetings easier than ever before considering up to 25 people can attend a group call. In addition, you can add 300 people to group chat. The wide availability of this program has also made it popular. For example, you can access it from tablets, smartphones, Macs and PCs and stay connected with friends and family even when you live on the other side of the globe. You can also meet friends on the other side of the globe!
